This affects bleeding-edge users only.
I think using a snapshop of DragonFly 3.5 comes with the expectation of
things like this.  How will they know?  This thread.  Anyone can point
them back to it.

We should probably seriously advocate using Releases *only* for most
users.  We can't do "release" level of support for dev-branch, so any
users of the current dev branch are expected to be subscribed to this
list. At least that should be our position.  there's a raised
expectation of user knowledge with the dev branch.
